For quite a while now, I’ve been hearing a lot about “This Is Us”, a series that has garnered an incredible number of nominations at almost every American award gala (for best actor/actress in a drama series, best drama series, etc.). Well deserved, in my opinion! The acting is highly impressive and believable. The “glimpses into the past” sequences are very well done and the characters are very endearing. It’s a beautiful family saga that will warm your heart during the cold winter months.

It’s the story of the Pearson family. Rebecca (played by the beautiful and talented Mandy Moore), and her husband, Jack (played by Milo Ventigimila, a man we would all wish to have as a father), are expecting triplets. Sadly, something goes wrong during Rebecca’s delivery and one of the much awaited babies dies. That same day, a newborn is abandoned in front of a fire station. The baby is brought to the hospital where he will await adoption by a loving family. For Jack and Rebecca, the baby’s timely arrival is miraculous and they take it as a sign that he is meant to be theirs. The series follows the lives of the Pearson family as they go through the ups and downs of day to day life…

As mentioned earlier, scenes from the present are interspersed with glimpses of the past. We witness Jack and Rebecca’s budding romance in the 60s (the looks are divine!), the early years of the three Pearson children, their adolescence, and their present day lives as adults in their early thirties who struggle with their identity. What will become of them?

A brilliant series through which you will experience a panoply of emotions. A series that achieves a wonderful balance between humour and drama, past and present.

Wrap yourself in a warm blanket, sip a hot cup of chai latté, and let yourself be carried away as you follow the lives of the Pearson family.
